In Search Of Micro Metric Taps
Posted by dueseylvr on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 9:23 PM

I am in search of a source for 0.5mm and 0.6mm taps compatible with Scale Hardware's threaded stainless steel and brass bolts sold by Model Motorcars. They no longer sell taps this small. I like to assemble and disassemble parts to check for any issues as I am building scratch built assembles prior to painting and final assembly.

This place has them https://timesavers.com/search.html?q=M0.6+tap&go=Search . Also, amazon sells a 31 pc tap & die set that includes an M0.5 tap and M0.7, but not the M0.6. This place has taps as small as M0.3 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32501856789.html .

Taps seem to run in the $12 and up range, though these are all Chinese made, so quality will be suspect. There are some Swiss made taps here https://www.esslinger.com/swiss-made-tap-tool-hole-threader-metric-threads/ that seem reasonably priced.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
